MAMMAL MONDAY # 64
We sure hope you enjoyed Bear Week; we know we did! It’s Mammal Monday again and we’re going to an island in Indonesia to meet a small four legged animal! So let’s hop aboard the E & E boat and take a trip to the South Seas!
MEET THE ANOA!

- Anoas are also known as the midget buffalo.
- They have plump bodies and short legs.
- Anoas have horns that face backwards, to help them run through the thick forests.
- Anoas are solitary.
- There are two species of Anoa, the lowland and the mountain.
These little water buffalo are so cute! Who knew that water buffalo came in miniature size? We love our hoofed cousins!
